About Chris Lawsen

Approachable, empathetic, yet tenacious - Chris sees himself not as a sales person, but as a professional who guides his clients through the major life event of selling or buying a property. Establishing success largely by word-of mouth, Chris has built a loyal following by listening to his clients' needs and desires, ensuring they fully understand the process, being available and responsive, and, most importantly putting clients' best interests ahead of making a sale.


A lover of the Bulimba 'destination and lifestyle' since arriving from New Zealand in 2010, you will often catch Chris meeting clients for a chat or briefing in the local coffee shop. But he is equally at home 'in the boardroom' where he is prepared to do the hard yards…. so his clients don't have to!


Chris' strength is bringing buyers and sellers together. His extensive database allows him to match the right property to the right person. 'I am constantly thinking about who have I crossed paths with and asking myself, who can I bring to my vendor's table? Or, which potential property listing would suit this buyer? I thrive on mutual benefit and making people happy.'


Chris also recognises the importance of candour; being honest and accountable for the bad as well as the positive aspects of each campaign. 'I don't make excuses….If I'm not getting a result for my client I will bend over backwards to find a solution and make it right.'


Seventeen years' experience in sales and management within the Property Services, Health, and IT industries prepared Chris for the rigors of the real estate profession. Chris purchased his first property at the age of 21 - and so began his love affair with everything 'property' – investment, development, rentals, and renovations. Chris takes pleasure in extracting the true value of the property.


Chris has retained his passion for the active life, and in particular cycling. Both on his bike and within the real estate process, Chris derives huge satisfaction from negotiating the 'rugged terrain' and achieving the seemingly impossible!


When you add this intense drive to Chris' patience, people skills and deep sense of responsibility to his role, it is clear why clients find their dealings with him so rewarding. And, in his capacity as Principal of Harcourts Inner East, Chris continually imparts these qualities to his team. Striking the right balance between informality and professionalism, Chris Lawsen is the EASY choice for all your important property needs.
